YourCause LLC, provider of CSRconnect Employee Engagement Platform, today announced a partnership with United Way Worldwide (UWW), the world’s largest privately-funded nonprofit, in which YourCause has been named a preferred technology provider. With 1,800 United Ways engaged in more than 40 countries worldwide, the partnership is expected to expand YourCause’s solution to the vast network of both enterprise and nonprofit organizations. The two industry leaders are focused on delivering efficiency in the corporate giving process, while expanding the overall offering through domestic and international vetting services. Immediately, the partnership will deliver to users the ability to access more than 37,300 (partner) domestic agencies, plus an additional 77,000 (non partner) agencies, followed closely by the expanded international rollout throughout summer 2016.

The partnership will roll out international services country by country, to ensure all vetting services comply with local regulations, provide in-country receipting, and payment processing and distribution methods are in place. The first phase of equivalency determination and vetting has begun for China, Japan, United Kingdom, France, Canada, India and Mexico. Additional countries will be rolled out quarterly.

“United Way Worldwide understands the demand for more innovative solutions to meet the ever changing needs of charitable corporate citizens,” stated Matt Combs, CEO and founder of YourCause. “Their mission to change lives through investing in childhood development, youth opportunity, economic mobility and access to health coupled with their global operations made them the perfect partner for us both domestically and internationally. ”

Within the terms of the partnership, United Way Worldwide has authorized YourCause as a fiscal agent, thereby enabling YourCause to directly issue tax receipts, process in country receipts, and establish a streamlined payment gateway that offers the industry’s lowest transaction fees.

“Our relationship with YourCause has grown as we seek to provide choice and innovative solutions for our corporate partners’ workplace campaigns,” said John Taylor, Chief Technology Officer for United Way Worldwide. “With YourCause as one of our preferred providers, United Way can do even more to build stronger communities.”
